Favorite Songs of 2008

Again, I really don't like making a list that basically says one song is better than another. So I won't; I'm just going to list songs that I really enjoyed from this past year. This is by no means a serious list; it's simply a list of my favorite songs picked by how much I have enjoyed them, the quality at which they were made and the amount of awesome within each track. I actually prepared about forty to fifty songs over the past week and am now finally narrowing it down. So, basically it's a spur of the moment decision...that's lasted a year.

Hopefully you'll enjoy some of my picks and if you have any differing opinions or tracks you would like to share, please comment and I would love to hear what you selected.
